Having problems with your General Electric GHDA485NCS Built-in Dishwasher ?

Ge quiet power 3, no water enters the machine??


Answers :

HI. There are three areas of concern here in this case:

A. Main Control Module
B. Floater switch
C. Water Inlet valve.

With that said; I would focus in on the actual inlet valve. This part will be the usual culprit. In order to inspect proper, follow the procedure below.

Dishwasher Inlet valve inspection:

To access the inlet valve remove the lower panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually held in place with two screws either above or below the panel. It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to reach the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove the panel. The water inlet valve can be identified by the water hoses connected to it. One hose will lead from the valve to the pump/motor assembly in the center of the dishwasher. Check that the hoses are securely connected to the valve and that there are no kinks in the hoses which could restrict water flow. There are two wires (four, if it has two solenoids) connected to the water inlet valve. Label the wires and connections so that you can properly reconnect them later. The wires are connected with slip on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire itself). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced. Use a multimeter to test for continuity. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Touch one probe to each terminal. A reading of infinity indicates a bad solenoid that must be replaced. Different brands and models will have various measurements, but the valve should show some resistance if it is functioning properly. If your valve has two solenoids, test the second one in the same way as the first. The valve must be replaced if it fails this inspection.


Additionally; I will need the entire model number associated with this unit, asap. This will allow me to post the necessary diagrams and part numbers needed.

After dishwasher was started, and water stared to enter the machine, it was unlatched and left with the lever in the open position for some time. The control dial had automatically moved 5/6 degrees clockwise and left there. Now the machine does not want to start no matter what I do. Power is to the machine, latch is moved to the right, but nothing happens. What's next. Thanks for any help you can give.

Hi. Our DS603I dishwasher starts on the Rinse cycle on its own - it beeps, red light flashing and no water entering the tub. It does this even if it is open. Similarly, when we try to turn it on to do a normal or heavy cycle, it starts (making quiet a loud noise) and then goes to the Rinse cycle, beeping, red light flashing, no water going into the tub. The pump wheel is turning. We can't find any blockages in the tubes. We have power-cycled it many times. Please help!

KUDK01ILBS5), SN: FR2702809. Have used this machine 6 years and just recently experienced noise that I eventually traced down to a bad recirculation pump bearing that failed due to a small leak in the shaft seal. Installed a new pump on Friday, 4/21/10 and that particular noise is now quieted. While the bearing noise was gone, there remains a pumped water noise that is quieted by manually adding about 1/2 gallon of water within the machine. So I now believe the water level is low, possib
